The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car that will debut in the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship is the latest edition of the best-selling racing car of all time, having been built in a production series of more than 1,400 units since 1998.
The latest Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racer is based for the first time on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS road car, with the weight of the motorsport derivative, reduced significantly versus the already lightweight road car. The 911 GT3 Cup is designed for racing in the many Porsche Carrera Cup Championships around the globe and the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup that supports Grands Prix and was based previously on the 911 GT3.
The 911 GT3 Cup race car is designed by the same team based in Weissach, near Stuttgart, Germany, responsible for the iconic Porsche 911 GT3 and RS road cars. In keeping with the lightweight, race-bred credentials that are synonymous with Porsche RS models, the road car weighs 1,370 kg. As befits its single-minded motor sport purpose, the 911 GT3 Cup race car tips the scales at 1,200 kg, resulting in even sharper performance on the circuit.
The new 911 GT3 Cup cockpit caters more than ever to the race driver's specific needs. An additional vent in the upper part of the front lid, for example, provides the driver with a better supply of fresh air.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup costs £94,600 plus VAT, and deliveries to customers will begin in early 2011. [Source: Porsche]
